Make A Wish

I seem to have an unnatural addiction to the blue-green family of colors. That last card uses it, and so does this next one. My card follows the current (I think) Clean & Simple challenge:

which I immediately turned on its ear like this:

Here's my card, then I'll explain:

I knew I wanted to use Pool before I'd even designed the card. And because I finally opened and used my Hero Arts Envelope Liner Background stamp, I may sneak this in over at the current A Blog Named Hero challenge, too.

The other stamps on this card are by Avery Elle, and I think I'll be getting more of their sets. I love the clean lines. To stamp the two arrow stamps, I first lined them up on my grid paper, then picked them up with an acrylic block. That's the only chance I had for getting them straight.

Okay, I'm going back in to stamp some more. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love this colorway and covet the background stamp.

  2. Thank you for the tip about the grid paper--I have a terrible time lining stamps up too!

  3. Totally love! Thanks for playing at A Blog Named Hero ;)

  4. I love those colors together, and thanks for the grid paper tip - that's a great idea. Avery Elle stamps are wonderful. I only have one set but I plan to get more soon.


I'd love to hear what you really think! :-)
